Collect Donations in a Single Text Message

Text-to-give makes it easy for donors to give whenever and wherever they’d like. With custom keywords preset to a specific donation amount*, all your donors have to do is confirm their billing zip code to be billed directly on their phone carrier's invoice. The process is completed in seconds and requires little effort from you and your donors!

How it Works:

Set up monthly text-to-give donations in one text message.

When your organization leverages the power of text-to-give, donors can set up a monthly recurring donation in seconds! Your custom keywords are associated with amounts of $5, $10, $25, or $50 for your recurring text-to-give donations.

When donors send a keyword to your text-to-give number:

Donors can easily opt out of a recurring text-to-give donation by replying STOP.
